Amana Side by Side Refrigerator not getting cold

My Amana refrig and freezer stopped working yesterday. At first it started making a humming noise then would stop. I cleaned the coils off hoping that would fix the problem. It didn't. I postioned the refrig so I could pin point the sound it was coming from the compressor area, where the wires attach to it. The compressor was hot. I let it sit over night and woke up to water on the floor. Does the compressor need replaced or could it be a relay?

Re: Amana Side by Side Refrigerator not getting cold

Amana is having some problems with their compressors locking up. if the compressor is manuactured by tecumseh then tthe compressor is mostlikely locked up and will need replacing. good news is your refrig is most likely less than years old and should be in warranty to amana..

A buzzing or humming noise just started. I checked the ice maker and don't see a problem. The noise seems to be coming from the freezer side but I hear it on the refrig side as well.

Humming noise would be your compressor going bad. The noise from the fan is because they are over working to try and keep everything cool

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
